Imaging facility managers and staff from around the globe met at the first Exchange of Experience Workshop from 8th-10th June 2016 at the EMBL in Heidelberg Germany, organized by the Global BioImaging Project.
European life science researchers now have the possibility to use state-of-the-art imaging technologies, which they do not find at their home institutions or among their collaboration partners.
The questionnaire was prepared within the framework of the H2020-funded CORBEL project (www.corbel-project.eu). CORBEL will establish a collaborative and sustained framework of shared services between the ESFRI Biological & Medical Research Infrastructures (BMS RIs).
In March Austria joined Euro-BioImaging Interim Board as its 16th member, together with 14 other European countries and EMBL. With their signature Austrian Ministry of Science Research and Economy supported work towards establishment of pan European imaging infrastructure that will serve all life scientists in Europe.
Austria will be represented in Euro-BioImaging Interim Board by Delegates from the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, and the Medical University Vienna.
This past autumn, Euro-BioImaging (EuBI), the pan-European research infrastructure for imaging technologies on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap took two key steps toward becoming a reality.
